Description Zoltan Laszlo 2013-02-07 22:56:23 UTC
Problem description: Characters with Outline Font Effect printing very pale

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a new document in Writer
2. Input some text
3. Format Character->Font Effects, check Outline
4. Print document

Current behavior: Characters with the Outline Effect look pale in printing. The same happens when exporting to PDF and printing from Acrobat Reader. However, on magnifying the document to 1500 % (yes, 15 times 100 %) the outlines seam healthy. Maybe they are too thin to be printed? I used a Brother DCP-7030 printer for testing.

Expected behavior:

              
Operating System: Windows 7
Version: 4.0.0.2 rc

Thank you for reporting this issue! I have been able to confirm the issue on:
Version 3.6.5.2 
Platform: Bodhi Linux 2.2 x64

As I've been able to confirm this problem on an earlier release I am changing the version number as version is the earliest version that we can confirm the bug, we use comments to say that the bug exists in newer versions as well.

Marking as:

New (confirmed)
Normal - Could potentially affect high quality/professional work
Low - not so bad that it is unusable,

Still observed.
Doing a huge magnification on the PDF shows the outline is intact.

Still observed on version 7.0.6.2
The outline is here, but so thin that we almost cannot see it on the PDF (directly exported) or printed with Microsoft print to PDF.
